as much as the rest of the world combined in terms of defense. our friends and allies in europe provide health care for all of their people. in many of these countries, college education is free. we are spending twice as much as part of our g.d.p. as they spend on defense. i think it's time to take a hard look at defense spending, and i think we can make cuts there which will still leave us with the kind of military we need to defend ourselves. madam president, instead of raising the medicare eligibility age from 65 to 67, instead of cutting benefits, we can make medicare and medicaid more efficient. i believe that we can save at least $200 billion over a ten-year period by eliminating waste, fraud and abuse and lowering prescription drug costs for seniors. for example, the medicare part d prescription drug program prohibited medicare from negotiating with the pharmaceutical companies for lower drug prices. the v.a. negotiates, other government agencies negotiate. medicare should be able to do that. fortunately, the war in iraq is over. we are about to wind down in afghanistan, and ther

with consensus. retail sales light. as for the picture in europe, take a look there. really following the cues of the u.s. markets this morning. our road map today starts with the fed announcing a new round of stimulus as chairman ber bernanke warps the fiscal cliff is hurting growth. house speaker john boehner expected to talk on the cliff talks 11 a.m. eastern time. >> told you this week, of course, they were talking actively, now, sprint/nextel offering to purchase the other half of clearwire it doesn't own. >> surges of best buy surging on reports that the founder is on the verge of making a formal takeover bid. >> and google maps has found its way back into apple's operating system. >> of course, we have to start off with the markets. dow's five-day winning streak has been snapped, despite the fed announcing a new round of stimulus. chairman ber bernanke say worries about the fiscal cliff are resulting in softer business environment and waning growth. members of congress told not to make plans for the christmas holidays, citing the urgency of striking a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. the
to obtain any relief in bankruptcy court? this hearkens back to the debtor's prisons of europe and english glands. charles dickens would have a ball with this standard. congress needs to address this. right now there's $150 billion in outstanding private student loan debt that is crushing many borrowers. $150 billion. i have a bill, the fairness for struggling students act, that would once again permit private student loans to be discharged in bankruptcy as they were before 2005. mark my words -- private student loans. there is no good reason why private student loans should be treated differently in bankruptcy from any other type of private unsecured debt. this 2005 change in the law was a special interest favor. it was never justified, never really debated, and cannot even be explained today. filing for bankruptcy is never a walk in the park and it should be the last resort for anyone, including student borrowers. but many private student loans have outrageous terms forced on kids, or just barely beyond being kids, and their families. students are saddled with those loans, many of them w

is that the major regions, especially the u.s., europe, china, india get together and say, come on, we're all facing these disasters and if we do that, you know, we have a chance because the other major theme of this report they think is absolutely right is, the irony is that we're sitting on the most incredible explosion of great technology that we have already seen in decades, if not a century plus. all the information technology, all the health technology, the genomics. but to solve our real problems requires kind of thinking ahead, which has not been our strong suit in recent years. >> we haven't strategized as to how to work together. >> exactly. >> we talk a lot here about income disparity in this country, what about the disparity in incomes in terms of the income level t united states compared to other countries, how are we doing on that level in terms of our income? >> well, you know, the u.s. has had growth over the years from two centuries now, 200 years of growing at about 2 percentage points per year, over two centuries that adds up to make us a very rich country. other countries now tha

, president george h.w. bush unilaterally announced land-based tactical nuclear weapons stationed in europe and an end to the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons on surface ships, attack submarines and land-based naval aircraft. billions had been spent over the years on such weapons, but there was really never any plans for how to use them. most have been dismantled and the united states today is no weaker. most frankly have not even noticed. what could we accomplish over the next 10 years with the same sort of bold thinking on the part of the president, the pentagon and members in congress? it's time that we find out. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, for five minutes. mr. poe: thank you, mr. speaker. 27-year-old marine corps john hammer served two tours in iraq and afghanistan. while he was on active duty, hammer's battalion was hit very hard in fallujah, and 13 of his fellow marines were killed in action. when he came home to america, he suffered from ptsd, as many of our warriors do. he spent time in a recovery facility in california to
to limit planned deployments to europe the russians never abandoned u.s. missile defense. the answer is not reset but recommitment to the principle that the most moral way to protect the american people from missile attacks is by missile defense. the third national security challenge i would briefly discuss is the threat of political islam. to defeat an enemy, we must first know the enemy, and that includes calling them by their name. radical islamists who seek to impose their ideology to rule others to govern political, social and civic life as well as religious life, intelligence is key to defeating political islam. foreign intelligence surveillance act or fisa and the patriot act are good examples of the tools that we need to know what our enemies are planning, who they are before they strike. these tools cannot be allowed to expire. the patriot act reflects a recognition that investigators charged with preventing acts of terrorism should have at least the same investigative tools as federal agents charged with targeting mobsters or health care fraud. the fourth and last national
200 years. and there's countries, such as western europe, where you don't, we don't have to have what we have and yet you go to other places, and i've been shocked in some of the countries i've been in that are not country from the to the united states singh a minimal amount of marine presence that we have had there. and then, of course, we all learned, i think, at least i did for the first time, or i guess i heard it, it didn't stick previously, that the marines are there to guard the documents. that's shocking. their first obligation to be to protect americans that are serving in that embassy. i'm hoping that's going to change. i'm sure it will change. and it would seem to me the rules of engagement really need to be reviewed. i look at those people streaming through the front gates in benghazi. that would have taken that much to stop that attack if indeed they would have responded to it immediately, it seems to me. again, you are looking at film and understand it's a lot more sterile than actually being there on the ground at the time, but when armed people are coming to the front
could quickly and by yourself. bring the microphone over here. >> i come from europe. everybody talks about [inaudible] . we need to know. i was wondering with this crazy schedule, how do you balance the family time? the mother is the most important role in the family for a child. the child is the future of everything we talk here. we teed dignity. how can a woman in the united states be independent and dreaming of a career if she has ? child' the united states is way behind many other countries. many countries to cut even care if a woman has maternity leave. here they have to worry that she has children. thank you. >> does anyone want to take on that? >> i will be happy to do that. i talked about getting up at 4:35 a.m. what i do when i get up, i have a son who's grown up now. when i get up his off living his life. my husband and i have always been in similar careers. that really helps a lot. over the years i actually made choices in terms of what was in the pathway i was on. what i was doing in order to treat the flexibility for me to raise our son. i do think that is so very import

with the secretary. >> reporter: wolf, there's a new press for diplomacy on syria with the secretary here in europe. as concern mounts that syrian president bashar al assad might use chemical weapons, secretary of state hillary clinton makes a new diplomatic push to end the conflict in syria. >> events on the ground in syria are accelerating. and we see that in many different ways. the pressure against the regime in and around damascus seems to be increasing. >> reporter: in dublin for a security conference, clinton met twice with russian foreign minister sergei in their one-on-one meeting discussing one thing they agree on need to set a line for the use or loss of control over syria's chemical weapons. the second meeting held behind closed doors at the russian insis tans including wanting to work out a process to get syria back from the brink. so far moscow has blocked action of president assad at the united nations insisting there should be no regime change. but diplomats now say moscow increasingly doubts assad can survive in power as the armed opposition gains ground. some u.s. senators say now
that the pentagon dispatches a quick reaction force from europe and rerouted a surveillance drone over benghazi, but bottom line, it just was not close enough and there wasn't enough time to make a difference. >> this is a scathing, scathing, very tough report. i read it and i must say, it's pretty shocking that there was so much dereliction of responsibility in protecting american diplomats in benghazi. we're going to have much more on this. chris, thank you very, very much. and i know you read it as well, kate. >> yeah, as wolf just said, tough criticism of the state department in that benghazi report. so how much responsibility should lie with secretary of state hillary clinton? we'll talk about that and much more with the chairman of the house intelligence committee, mike rogers, coming up. also, what could an expert on genetics reveal about newtown gunman adam lanza? dr. sanjay gupta joins us to talk about the investigation. in? yeah, sure you can. great. where's your gift? uh... whew.

of the world where study measures in europe have already caused many of their economies to slip back in recession. we can't do that. we've got to provide both confidence and the resources for consumers to go into the marketplace and continue to sustain this recovery. in fact, i would hope to accelerate this recovery because we need more to demand, more jobs, more activity, not less. now, unfortunately, the record of some of our colleagues on the other side has suggested that when it comes to making difficult decisions on behalf of the majority of americans, there is at times a disconnect. we've -- i've been in this congress where the other side has threatened government shutdowns, where the other side has seriously considered defaulting on the debts of the united states. i have seen threats to end unemployment insurance compensation. that would be a tremendous disadvantage to so many americans. so i am hopeful that we can respond both thoughtfully and decisively by passing the legislation the senate has already passed with respect to reducing taxes, continuing the reduction for middl

. >> there's been a longstanding shift in north america and europe toward para militarize policing using helicopter-style systems, using infrared sensors, using really, really heavy militarized weaponry. that has been longstanding fuelled by the war on drugs and other sort of explicit campaigns. more recently, there has been a big push since the end of the cold war by the big defense and security and i.t. companies to sell things like video surveillance systems, things like geographic mapping systems, and even more recently, drone systems that are being used in the assassination raids in afghanistan and pakistan and elsewhere. >> that is stephen graham, author of, "cities under siege: the new military urbanism." your final comment? expressing weaponization in the way we live. policing is one of the most obvious and current examples in that. i would suggest the pervasive development of john technology around the world that we are saying are being used for all sorts of purposes is really the thin edge of the wedge when it comes to these issues. we're going to see greater and greater weapon

(narrator) that international stature permitted moore to work on a larger scale, a dream since the early '30s. he could now afford to hire assistants, including anthony caro, who would go on to a successful career of his own, with works like the national gallery ledge piece, installed in 1978. i thought he was the most interesting sculptor around. and really, i went to ask him if i could work with him, work for him, because i'd had too traditional a studentship. a studentship, really, where we were taught by people who thought that art was about nymphs and fawns and generals on horses and that. i used to drive him into london from much hadham and we'd talk about art. we'd have little conversations about, you know, "did you go to the national gallery today?"

china, india and europe are on our shore. >> they're having government subsidies to chinese products so they can put guys like you out of business and that's what a lot of americans don't understand. it's frustrating to me, that's correct. but there's probably a lore important point about the product and that is that our government is making it difficult for us compete. and the tax policy, president obama is telling small business people like myself, he's going to help out by raising taxes. . the only way is to invest in equipment and fuel costs the same, electricity costs the same. the only way i can have more is to have better equipment. the only way to invest is to be profitable and removes small profits and unable to-- wage gross decreases. >> a lot of businesses seem to do okay. ge didn't pay any taxes, so biggest organizations are finding ways to be circumvent the complexities of tax keyed. as a small business operator, do you get to do those things? >> when president obama came to hat field, pennsylvania, down the street, about a week ago,way discovered by the press and we nighee

in washington, who is protecting books? i mean, in europe, they do protect books. they protect bookstores and they protect libraries, and they protect books. that's good. in germany in particular, netherlands, scandinavia. they really protect it because they know, you know, that's a basis of the culture and civilization. i don't know that that's happening here, and i'm not sure what's going to happen. i don't know that it's going to happen in this state. it could. it could. >> well, thank you for raising that. in france right now, they are actually giving grants to endangered book shops in order to keep going because they realize that the culture is transferred through books. >> the interesting thing here is it doesn't even come up. >> right. >> it just doesn't come up in discussion which is nuts. you know, i did a book with lisa markland, a popular writer from sweden, and i went over there, and for three days in stockholm, we did 50 interviews with newspapers and magazines. you write a book here, you can't find a journalist here. is there a journalist here? okay, god bless you two.
